F.H. Paschen’s D.C. Team Organizes Annual Food Drive
For the second consecutive year, F.H. Paschen staff are collecting food for those who are less fortunate in Northern Virginia. The donations will benefit Food for Others in Fairfax. The food bank primarily serves the elderly and families with children in the community. “We’re holding the food drive because we want to improve the community where we live and work not just through exceptional construction work, but also by giving back,” Anthony Edwards shared.
Anthony said staff selected Food for Others because of the way it operates. “It’s set up more like a grocery store, so people have a chance to pick what they enjoy eating which is especially important for kids,” he explained.
Last year, the D.C. team collected nearly 279 pounds of food in only two weeks. Everyone in the office and field donated along with subcontractors. The goal this year is to triple the amount collected in 2017. The food drive started on November 1 and will continue until December 15. The donations will be delivered to Food for Others on December 17.
